PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Emma Loving Central Bucks East
There's a lot of effusive language that could be used to describe the senior's performance this season for the Patriots: brilliant, gritty, reliable - just to name a few. But what it comes down to is the fact that when C.B. East needed her most, the Penn recruit delivered, and usually in spectacular fashion.
The forward was downright sensational all season long, more than once putting her team on her back to will her squad to a win. She used her unique play making ability to power the Patriots to a 24-1-1 record, a District 1 Class AAA title, a Suburban One Continental Conference championship and a berth in the PIAA state final. The district title and state final berth were both program firsts.
Loving scored 33 goals, including eight in the district and state playoffs.
With a dangerous shot and ability to create space with minimal touches, Loving proved time and time again to be one of the biggest scoring threats in the entire state.
